PREFACE 

Twelfth Floor, Custom House, 
Boston, Massachusetts. 

This handbook has been prepared by the 
Social Service Bureau of the United States 
Shipping Board, Recruiting Service, to furnish 
in condensed form information that should 
prove of value to seamen of the American 
Merchant Marine. The organizations and 
individuals mentioned are, to the best of 
our knowledge, reliable and worthy of the 
confidence of American men and have been 
selected without bias or favoritism. We 
hope that seamen will find this publication 
of value, and that when they are in any of 
the ports herein listed, they will take advan- 
tage of the suggestions offered for their benefit. 

The various countries have been arranged 
in alphabetical order, and under the coun- 
tries the ports are given alphabetically. In 
the cases of Canada, Great Britain and 
Ireland, and the United States, the main sub- 
territorial divisions are first given in alpha- 
betical order, and then under each principal 
section or State the ports are similarly desig- 
nated. 

It is the plan of the Social Service Bureau 
to issue other editions from time to time, so 
that such additional resources as come to the 



attention of the Bureau will be promptly 
brought, through the medium of pamphlets 
of this nature, to the attention of American 
men of the sea. 

We shall be glad to receive suggestions that 
will improve this publication and add to the 
scope of its usefulness. 

The Social Service Bureau is grateful to 
all organizations and individuals who, by 
the courtesy of their prompt and careful 
replies to inquiries, have very materially 
aided in the preparation of this manual.
